Lancaster Products Low Shear Mixer

Molding Sand | Foundry

Metallurgy | Powder

RECOVERING WASTE STREAMS / BENEFICIAL RE-USE

Raw | Friction Materials

The Lancaster High Shear Mixer provides a higher quality mix of friction materials for typical clutch and brake pad application. The higher intensity mixing action results in a more homogeneous mixture and a reduction in the total processing time required. Lancaster Products can provide a single source solution for the friction materials end user.

The Lancaster High Shear Mixer can be used to produce the required friction lining batches with the following properties:

  • A mixture that is more homogeneous than a low intensity mixer.
  • The level of intensity can be adjusted to meet the needs for the final mixture.
  • Capable of mixing the raw materials even when they include the addition of a fiber component.

Refractory Materials

Lancaster High Shear Mixers are used worldwide in the preparation of raw materials with reduced processing times for all forms of refractory materials. Refractories are important to high-temperature manufacturing. They are critical to industries such as glass, ceramic, and metallurgy by thermally insulating equipment, thereby protecting personnel and equipment, and saving fuel.

Typical types of refractory components:

  • Molding compounds for standard and lightweight refractory bricks
  • Compounds used for casting final shapes
  • Compounds used for pressing final shapes
  • Ceramic materials that contain fibers for increased strength
  • Dry mixing of materials for field installation
  • Compounds used for plastic refractories
  • Ceramic materials that contain fibers for increased strength

Molded Bricks

Pyrotechnics

The Lancaster High Shear Mixer can be used to blend the raw materials for pyrotechnic applications such as fireworks production. The mixers can also be used for military flare production, munitions and air bag accelerant production.

Proof of Concept Testing in Lancaster K1 Lab Mixers

Lancaster Products is dedicated to optimizing our customers’ mixing processes and recipes. This 3 part video series will focus on our on-site lab and testing capabilities. In this first video, we demonstrate proof of concept testing with a chicken litter material for a fertilizer product.

We use our K1 lab mixer during these initial tests. We load the K1 mixer with the test material and then program the steps and feeds. After the mixer begins, we add a liquid binder to it to allow the material to agglomerate into granules or larger pellets.

Rotary Table Feeders Turn Batch Processing to Continuous Batch Processing

Rotary table feeders act as a critical piece of equipment in Lancaster Mixers continuous batch processing lines. They provide a mechanical conduit to continuously meter and feed materials from each batch of material processed to the next process in line. The cone and cylinder over the table is used as a surge hopper to temporarily store the material batch while the table feeder continuously discharges the material. Their role may seem simple compared to the processing equipment they’re connected to, but is significant to maintaining continuous throughput and ensuring overall system performance.

Lancaster Products’ high shear mixers process materials in batches which allows for tight control over the physical properties of the end product and thus, higher on-size, homogeneous yields. Most batches are processed completely and ready for discharge in a matter of minutes. By positioning a Lancaster rotary table feeder under the mixer’s discharge chute and feeding product downstream to the next piece of equipment, the batch processing is converted to a continuous process.
